Can Order Taxi in Uber App Sydney

I’ve had a few PAX tell me they have the option to order a Taxi within the Uber App in Sydney. Apparently it’s in the scroll section where you can order UberX, select or XL. Had a Pax tell me that’s why driver rates are better in Sydney because Uber is also taking %25 from Taxi bookings...

If so, when’s the QLD Taxi commission goin to come to the party and make rates better for ALL??

I think you will find that Uber actually started as an app to book a taxi (before taxi companies had there own apps) then they introduced a cheap version called UberX, and then UberXL & uber Black etc
That is why it is so funny when all of the haters go on about it ...

Nahh these passengers swore black and blue that they had the option to order a Taxi through the Uber App recently in the Sydney area. One passenger had actually ordered a yellow cab in Sydney with the Uber App!

That article is nearly 4 years old. Is that still applicable?

Maybe some of the Sydney guys with previous taxi experience such as Mulder99 or fields could throw some light on this.
